In this article, we will check out some of the Spring Airlines Japan reviews. Is this airline the right airline to fly with? Let’s find out.
Airline history and ownership
In 2011, Spring Airlines reported that it had arrangements to set up a Japanese subsidiary company. To do so, Spring was required to discover at least one Japan-based accomplice because of Japanese lawful confinements that would constrain its venture’s investments. By 1 August 2014, the airline began its operations and started flying to the four Japanese destinations mentioned above.
The subsidiary is currently lead by Hiroshi Ukai, who acts as the airline’s representative director.
The people’s opinions
As few as the Spring Airlines Japan reviews are, they were still mixed. One passenger from the Tokyo prefecture gave the airline a 4-star out of 5 rating. According to the said passenger, he was pleased with his flight as he was able to get the ticket at such a cheap price.
Another passenger from the Tokyo prefecture noted that the airline was more of an average rather than something noteworthy. Although he did like the automatic check-in done by scanning a QR code.
A look at the website
The website, which is originally set in Japanese, can be translated into English by clicking on the US flag that shows up in the drop-down box located at the top right corner. The homepage is very simple—almost minimal—with a large, automatically scrolling background image occupying most of the page’s upper portion.
In front of this image is the flight search as well as the flight status form. If you are in need of a flight, simply fill up the flight search form. Don’t forget to specify if you’re flying one way or round trip as well as the number of children or infants flying with you, if any.
Scroll down and you will find the featured flights along with their prices. If you are using a smartphone or a tablet, you may download the free mobile app that works for both Android and iOS devices.
The airline offers Economy Class flights, however, they also have a SpringPlus option that features front-row seating with 20%-30% additional legroom, a 25-kilogram baggage, fresh meals, and ticket flexibility. Onboard meals and beverages may be ordered at least 36 hours prior to your flight. To view their menu, visit this page.
Spring Airlines Japan is based at Narita International Airport. They offer flights to Japanese (Hiroshima, Tokyo, Takamatsu and Saga) destinations and two Chinese destinations (Chongqing and Wuhan).
Their fleet consists of Boeing 737-800 three, which was chosen because of the aircraft’s popularity to Japanese customers as well as the easiness of finding pilot’s that are capable of flying 737’s.
An average airline
The small number of Spring Airlines Japan reviews found online only shows that IJ have yet to fully catch the hearts of its Japanese passengers. This is probably due to their limited flight routes and the average services that they offer. Should they improve their inflight services and marketing strategies, it is highly probable that they will entice more passengers to fly with them.
